Nice try - good mix of team and individual play. Poor tackling and by then Saints down to 14. But good to see such a try from a Scottish player. Hope he gets the opportunity to do the same in the 6N. ... and a more competitive Scottish side can only be good for the 6N as a whole.
After watching the clip many times, it is difficult to see a red card offence. Not sure what the scrum-capped player is screaming about; possibly more damage could/would have been caused by studs on the head of the number 13. However, pretty stupid thing to do after the whistle had blown. As always, you want to give the referee the benefit of the doubt as they see it only once and in real time. But with the luxury of the replay ... a verbal warning only for me; no card, yellow or red. »
I agree wih many of the comments above. I do think that citing is becoming increasingly petty and much more involved than perhaps waht it was initially set up to achieve. In particular I feel that players retaliating to obvious provocation are often hard done to, especially where the referee or touch judge is unsighted and, therefore, not in a position to protect the victim. »
